Forgotten Friday 31- A forgotten project
Hi folks, well it's my second post today, but one that you are more familiar with, my Forgotten Friday post. I decided this week to look at a project that I started about a year ago at the Graphicus Retreat, and never managed to finish. I think that I might tackle a bit of this project over the next few weeks in this slot in order to finish the project, as it is such a large project to tackle. There are lots of techniques covered, and it will refresh my memory, and perhaps yours too.
The project that I am looking at is a large canvas with several tags covering it. The class was called 'Tagtastic Workshop', and it was full of fabulous colour and stamping. The beauty of tackling this project now, is that I can take my time, and, if I wish, incorporate newer Chocolate Baroque stamps into the tags that have come along since, which are becoming firm favourites. We were encouraged at the Retreat to go home and use the stamps that we had to finish this project off, I had them all, as I love these stamps so much, but I may incorporate one or two little newbies in.
Another good element to this project is the range of colours that I will be using, I have 'forgotten' Distress Inks too, colours that I don't use or neglect, and this project will see me getting those out, and dusting off the cobwebs.
So far, I have coloured my canvas, I did this at the Retreat, and tackled three tags. Two of these were started, I have just finished them today, and made another one.
I am going on holiday on Sunday, to lovely Lake Garda, and will be away until 12th September. If I have time, I will do a scheduled post for next week. However, time is running away with me, so I'm not making any promises! Don't forget to look through your own neglected stash and see if you can make something with your forgotten items. Leave a comment on my Blog, and I'll pop along to take a look. Thanks for stopping by today, xx
